Khalifa International Stadium - Qatar
Khalifa International Stadium – Qatar

Khalifa International Stadium has hosted a long list of momentous sporting events since its inauguration in 1976.

In fact, rarely is football or athletics mentioned in Qatar without referring to this venue.

Naturally, the stadium received a complete refit for the FIFA World Cup 2022™ as a reward for its long-standing service.

On reopening in May 2017, it played host to the Amir Cup Final – the club football event close to the hearts of all Qataris.

The stadium’s magnificent dual arches were always its most recognisable features. These remain intact – but now feature a wide canopy stretched out below them.

This complements the stadium’s cooling system to maintain a comfortable temperature for players and fans alike.

The new tier added 12,000 seats, while digital lighting and a modern façade brought new sparkle to an old friend.

Having previously staged the Arabian Gulf Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup™ and IAAF World Athletics Championships, this venue is ready to excite the world as part of the greatest football show on earth.

Capacity: 40,000
Location: Aspire, 5km west of central Doha
